- First you need to find out either EMAIL, LDAPDN or MembmerDN of the user that you want to display. In my local environment my portal is not integrated with LDAP, i am using default file based registry that ships with portal out of box. So first i checked the users that are available in the

<%@taglib prefix="person" uri="/WEB-INF/tld/people.tld"%>
<%@taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/portlet" prefix="portlet"%>
<portlet-client-model:require module="ibm.portal.xml.*" />
<portlet-client-model:require module="ibm.portal.portlet.*" />
<person:person value="uid=sunil,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm" valueType="LDAPDN"
displayName="Sunil Patil"></person:person> <br/>
<person:person value="uid=jiya,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm" valueType="LDAPDN"
